Continuous flowers on a dwarf plant!
This is a breakthrough variety of buddleia with all the fragrance and butterfly appeal of traditional varieties in a small, easy to maintain package. 'Blue Chip' stays under three feet tall without any pruning, and blooms continuously from mid summer to frost without deadheading. It is frost tolerant, non-invasive and very easy to grow.
Good drainage is essential. Prune after new growth emerges in spring.
Every claim made for Blue Chip is absolutely true. Lovely foliage, beautiful continuous blooms, and it thrives in the heat and humidity of an Oklahoma summer. Amazingly, Blue Chip is still covered with blooms at the end of October!
This little shrub bloomed from June to frost the first year in the ground. There were always butterflies on several branches. It stays compact and bloomed profusely. I had it toward the front of the border and it did not overwhelm the other bedding plants. It was planted with Supertunia Vista Silverberry and the two gave each other nice complements. The blueish purple pink throat of Silverberry's white flower danced with the blueish purple of the Lo and Behold.
